Rose Bay

Rose Bay is an established residential area, with commercial areas along Old South Head Rd. The Rose Bay Precinct is bounded by Old South Head Road, Portland Street, Mitchell St and Blair St. Please note boundary lines run through the middle of the street. Rose Bay Precinct is part of Hunter Ward.

Part of the suburb of Rose Bay is located in the Woollahra Municipality. Rose Bay is named after the Right Honourable George Rose, joint Secretary to the British Treasury.

Settlement of the area dates from the 1830s, although population was minimal until the late 1800s. Land was used mainly for farming and market gardening. Rapid growth took place during the 1880s and 1890s. Expansion continued during the early 1900s, the interwar period and the immediate post-war years. The population has increased slightly since the early 1990s, a result of new dwellings being added to the area.

A major feature of the area is Rose Bay Secondary College.
